Will this be a healthy week?

Monday, February 11, 2013

Last week I didn't fall off or anything, I just didn't do as well on certain aspects. I didn't track my food. I worked out about 4 times, but not as much as I wanted to. I felt weak at least 3 days out of the week due to being sick so I didn't get as much housework done. Not only am I trying to make my body a better place to live, but I'm also trying to make my household a better place to live. Lets face it, I'm not a good housekeeper. As a matter of fact, my New Years Resolution had nothing to do with losing weight this year. I knew I was going to work on that, but I didn't want to jinx that and turn it into the cliche of New Years dieting and be doomed to failure. I wanted it to just be something I do because its better for my life. My New Years resolution this year was to just get my crap together. Be more responsible and try to take care of my household more efficiently. I admit, I'm not all the way there and last week really messed with that, but I'm really going for my "getting fit" to help me pull other things in my life together. I remember how healthy and energetic I felt when I was fitter and lighter. I've already felt the benefits with just 1 month of results. I refuse to sit there on the couch feeling sorry for myself anymore. Being sick for a couple of days is not going to get me down. This week will be a healthier week! I've had a problem in the past with going crazy with losing weight, seeing some decent results and then just giving up after about a month. I will NOT give up this time. I'm 33 years old and I'm tired of weighting to start my life how I want it. When will I finally get up and put my life in order? Seeing my own mom having these same problems at the age of 53 this Christmas really woke me up. I saw what I'm going to be like in 20 years if I don't do something about it NOW!!! I can't keep putting it off. I do not ever want to spend another Summer wearing long jeans and feeling the sweat rolling down my uncomfortable fat and feeling miserable. I will do this!!!

    Just be careful not to push yourself too hard too soon after being sick. Don't want a relapse!
